Now that you can fly non-stop from Manchester to Hong Kong with Cathay Pacific, over the coming weeks we will be highlighting the many attractions of Hong Kong. From art and culture, via food and drink, through to its nightlife, Hong Kong is a thriving modern city. And as an art destination, the city benefits from a rich history – centuries of Chinese influence, followed by 150 of colonial rule – and location as a crossroads for the world at large. The Wong Chuck Hang district has welcomed a series of art galleries in recent years, with vacant factory floors offering big, open venue spaces for the city’s artists to showcase large installations. Spring Workshop (pictured), Art Statements and Blindspot Gallery are three such galleries in the district. In the Central district, meanwhile, internationally renowned galleries include Gagosian, Gallery EXIT and White Cube. And with a host of major art museums offering diverse exhibitions year-round – plus one-off shows from the likes of Art Basel (pictured), which also exhibits in Miami and Basel – there are no shortage of options for art lovers. Cathay Pacific, which won the coveted ‘World’s Best Airline’ award at the Skytrax World Airline Awards 2014, flies non-stop from Manchester to Hong Kong four times a week. Return fares to Hong Kong start from £649, in economy, £1,249, in Premium Economy and £3,339 in business class from Manchester. Find out more and book your Hong Kong trip below – plus enter here for a chance to win a trip for two to Hong Kong for three nights.
